Product details

Even if this were his Father's Root Beer, he wouldn't know. The Bastard Stepson Root Beer started out as a wholesome traditional cream stout, but after mixing things up with a rowdy bunch from the other side of the aisles turned into something a bit more mischievous...

Everything you'd expect from a root beer is present: notes of vanilla, caramel, licorice, and sarsaparilla all meld into the creamy, decadent body of the base beer. Sip on a pint and be whisked back to your childhood, (which was hopefully better than the Bastard Stepson's) or couple it with vanilla ice cream for a truly delicious treat.

Aroma Smells like a normal root beer
Appearance deep ruby, nearly jet black - silky, lacy and firm off white head
Flavor Vanilla, caramel, licorice, sarsaparilla
Mouthfeel Smooth, medium creamy body
Overall Impression    Reminiscent of root beer soda, with a bit of an alcohol kick

Good kit.

The only (constructive) criticism I can offer is the sweetener. Even though it is a very small amount, it is VERY strong. If you like your beer sweet, then put it all in. I only use a bit under half as I like mine a lot less sweet. To my taste, using that small of an amount brings it closer to the level of what you buy in the store.

Not quite finished, but still pretty good stuff.

Just bottled it yesterday, so it's not had time to condition. It really has a good root beer flavor, but you can taste a hint of dark beer flavor as well. We're hoping this will fade with age. Overall we like it, and may very well order it again.

Really Sweet!

Great kit. Easy to brew but turned out really sweet!! If it stays in the bottle too long it will over carbonate! If you like root beer this one is for you!!
